I build one identical to that except I didn't put the foot under the middle span. Should have. Excellent job. What are you going to enclose it with? I used OSB but would go with something else when I do it again. Looks great.

Yeah there will be a couple more feet when I put the cross pieces for the floor.

I am going with roll sheet metal for the exterior and deerview windows.

May get a friend of mine to spray foam the inside if I get a wild hair. Lol
